For our first full day in Prague we had a guided tour that took us to the Hradcany castle, charles bridge and past the old jewish quarter. We did not spend much time at the castle..briefly went inside the St. Vitus Cathedral. I really wanted to see more of the castle but did not end up going back. I would suggest heading there in your free time and explore everything because the castle is really made up of several parts and we barely saw any of it
The second night we did a pub crawl which was a lot of fun. The one we did did not end up at Karlovy Lazne (the big 5 story club that a lot of tours go to) but I heard its not so great anyway. I forgot it DOWN POURED that night...we got stuck in it while walking to the first bar. the guide led us through all these back alleyways and I felt like I was in a scene from a vampire movie in transylvania with all the lightning and old buildings. We ran through it and spent a good amount of time using all the bathroom paper towels to dry off. We were soaking wet for a while but it didn't bum us out or anything. the first bar out of 4 or 5 was very fun and a great way to start out the night. We played beer pong since they had several tables. It was fun to teach all the people who had never played before. I think the pub crawl was about 15 euro and the firs bar was drink all you can for free...totally well worth the money, especially since you need a lot of beer for beer pong
The next day was a bike tour, which I did not partake in because A. I don't love bike riding and B. I was hung over of dammit. During that time I walked back to the Jewish Quarter and did some souvenir shopping. I always remembered my friends telling me that prague was so cheap...well, its not anymore. Except the beer. I think the most I payed for a beer was 1.25 euro. I went to a museum of torture some time during the 3 days and it was not good so don't go to that if you pass it. After the bike tour the others went to one of the oldest breweries called U Fleku. It is from the 1400s! Although it was on my itinerary I missed out since I didn't go biking=( Dinner on the 3rd night was at a place with traditional dancers and singers. the food was traditional fare and made of up several kinds of meant and potatoes/dumplings. Nothing special. I can't wait to go back to prague!!!
